Continuity of Renyi entropies - limiting cases

The Renyi entropies are defined as $$S_{\alpha}(\rho)=\frac{1}{1-\alpha} \log \operatorname{Tr}\left(\rho^{\alpha}\right), \alpha \in(0,1) \cup(1, \infty)$$ It is claimed that this quantity is ...

Prove the additivity of the Renyi entropy: $H_{\beta}(p \times r) = H_{\beta}(p) + H_{\beta}(r)$

The Renyi entropy of order $\beta$, for a discrete probability distribution $p$ is given by \begin{equation} H_{\beta}(p) = \frac{1}{1 - \beta} ~\log \left( \sum_{i \in S} p(i)^{\beta} \right), \end{...

How to take the limits of the sandwiched Renyi divergences?

The sandwiched Renyi divergence is defined as $$\begin{equation} \tilde{D}_{\alpha}(\rho \| \sigma):=\frac{1}{\alpha-1} \log \operatorname{tr}\left[\left(\sigma^{\frac{1-\alpha}{2 \alpha}} \rho \...
